The “Living Classroom” on Trunk Island has benefited from a $10,000 donation by the Garden Club of Bermuda.

The Bermuda Zoological Society runs the living classroom project on the Hamilton Parish island with the aim of educating tomorrow’s environmentalists.

A spokeswoman for the Club, which made the donation as part of its 100th anniversary activities, said: “The Garden Club of Bermuda is pleased to support this worthwhile endeavour.

“We believe that this gift will make a difference to Bermuda, the students and future generations.“

Trunk Island is undergoing a complete restoration – eradicating invasive flora, planting endemics, reforesting with Bermuda cedar trees among other conservation efforts.

A cottage on the island has also been transformed into a functional classroom.

Colin Brown, president of BZS, said: “We are very grateful to the Garden Club of Bermuda for recognising our Living Classroom as a project worthy of support for their 100th anniversary.

“This donation will be used to educate young people about Bermuda’s natural environment while also restoring Trunk Island to native and endemic forest.”
